Mental Health and Wellbeing

Our Mental Health and Wellbeing Support Team are; Mrs Judy Burridge, Miss Leanne Dixon and Mrs Jenny Lamb.

 

Our vision is to support each child’s holistic wellbeing by:

  • Raising awareness of mental health and emotional wellbeing as an open and positive topic
  • Promoting positive physical and emotional development and the link between them.
  • Recognising and addressing concerns as they arise.
  • Supporting children and their families in implementing effective coping strategies.
  • Supporting our children in developing the 5 Ways to Wellbeing
  •  

The 5 Ways to Wellbeing are:

  1. Connect with other people.
  2. Be physically active
  3. Learn new skills.
  4. Give to others.
  5. Pay attention to the present moment (mindfulness)

 

We aim to achieve this through:

  • Education for staff, families and the children through assemblies, PSHCE lessons, workshops and effective links to Mental Health support groups and charities
  • Effective communication across the school community
  • Having an allocated Mental Health and Wellbeing Support Team
  • Introducing coping mechanisms through Mental Health events, assemblies and class activities, as well as 1-1/group support sessions
